Urban Mobility European Union
European Commission published a new video about urban mobility.
The Urban Mobility Video is a three-minute film that explains the approach of the European Commission about urban mobility. It starts with a problem-setting part in which, without voice-over, difficult urban mobility situation are shown in slow motion: a cyclist hit by a car, a woman in a crowded bus that has to brake suddenly, a man in his car who can't stand the traffic jams, emissions and noise anymore, pedestrians who do not have enough space to walk on the pavement etc. The second part develops the Commission's recommendations and tools to help address the situation: the development of a sustainable urban mobility plan, the planning in an integrated way, the use of intelligent transport systems etc. It calls on the local authorities to start the process, using the tools that are made at their disposal, such as the financing opportunities and the knowledge sharing platforms from the Commission.
